    VM Interface Passthrough

    To run real peripherals with a VM, they must be connected to the server. For example, you pass through a USB card and a video card to the VM and then connect your monitor and USB keyboard and USB mouse to the server to operate the VM.

    Toss KVM, and move to a VirtualBox solution

    LOL, can you produce any proof that KVM is fudamentally flawed and not worth being supported? As I was going through over 150 of the latest unread posts, I counted the VM threads. There was one code 43 VM issue and one newby posting that their browser couldn't connect to a VM. So, 1% of the latest active threads were KVM related. Doesn't really match your claims that KVM is fatally flawed and generating an overabundance of support threads. Sorry, but there is no good technical reason for it to go, and no way in hell would virtualbox be a viable replacement. Good luck in the future, You want to throw tantrums and act like a baby while not wanting to work with anyone towards a solution for your particular usage (of old basically unsupported software) on unRAID, so obviously it's not the solution for you. But just maybe you'll find something else that works flawlessly for you. On a side note. I was having a lot of difficulty with VM's corrupting and not being stable. turns out it was the USB card I was passing through.
  3. Without parity, there is no ability to swap a device and let unRAID rebuild it as you have already figured out. You could install the new drive as another disk and copy the data over. Copy the files over the network using a PC or use Midnight Commander from the unRAID command line by typing MC. I've found it doesn't take that long to move 1T blocks of data at a time using a PC. For what you are doing, I would copy though. Make sure you copy disk to disk - DO NOT copy using the share or share to disk. Once complete, do a new config to get rid of the old drive. You could also move the old data drive to the cache position and replace the old data drive with the new drive. A new config would be required here. Once setup, you run the mover and it would move the data off the old drive to the new data drive or possibly other data drives depending on the share settings. Then, do another new config to remove the old drive from the cache position.

    Supermicro Servers Hacked?

    After reading the level of work that must have gone into the Stuxnet attack, this type of attack sounds completely believable. China is well known to have a massive state operated hacking organization and is also well known for counterfeiting complex integrated circuits, so it isn't far fetched at all for them to be hardware hacking new products being produced there. Another big question to be asked is how many compromised products don't we know about?

    Supermicro Servers Hacked?

    Interesting stuff. From the detail, it's likely true.

    Still locking up

    You still won't want to hear it, but you'll likely have to start swapping major components to figure this out. Something in there is a piece of crap and the only way to fix it is to replace it.

    6.6.0 GUI

    There's are good reasons orange isn't really a desired product or marketing color.

    6.6.0 GUI

    I'm not seeing any big changes in the font size causing issues with stuff fitting the screen except for the following, On the main Docker tab the Advanced view no longer fits my screen width due to the added load columns. As for the basic view, I hate those drop down arrows - all they achieve is cluttering the screen up to hide a few lines of text. Then, when I click them I have to click both the port and volume mapping because some goofy bottom justify thing is happening. I vote just get rid of attempting those arrows all together. See the screenshot of what happened clicking the volume mapping down arrow. The other thing is the hard boxes around all the options to set. Example places would be a VM edit screen or the disk setting screen. The hard lined boxes around each setting are very odd to see compared to how it's done by pretty much everyone else these days. I think it also contributes to requiring more space between items that isn't necessary to have and just causes more scrolling. If you want to talk how it's a modern layout, hard outlined setting boxes like that are very old school and not modern at all. It looks good otherwise. The other main tabs seem to fit the screen about the same as before.

    Sad to see ...

    I've tried both themes. They both suck. Overall, this is now the worst forum layout of any forum I regularly visit. This forum at 100% in the browser is still larger than most forums at 125%. There are fewer responses on the screen at once compared to other forums, which means more scrolling to read anything. The comments about more air are true, there is less content and more blank screen on this forum compared to others. Somehow with the large font sizes, I still find it harder to read. By this, I'm talking when zoomed in the browser to have about the same text size as I use on other forums. Likely has something to do with the exact fonts and colors, but could also be due to the monochromatic color scheme - just too much white or black background. Other forums have softer color variations for borders and post dividers and such. Overall, I do find it rather sad to read that you paid for this. There probably are better default forum themes.

    Win10 VM Lockup Issue

    No, there were no indications. It was process of elimination. I started installing Windows using VNC and it worked, but installing with the GPU and USB cards would not. So, I narrowed it down to the USB card. I doubt it's the core system or else you'd be seeing issues with unRAID itself being unstable. At one time I had hard lock-ups happening too without any indications of why and had to buy a new power supply and then a new motherboard taking shots at what could be the issue. Luckily, it was the motherboard. But then, before even that I had upgraded to an AMD system to have enough power to use a simple VM and then found I couldn't install the drivers for both the iGOU or dGPU in the Windows VM. No way, no how, trying every recommended step to make either work. Ended up buying an Intel platform and got that bad motherboard. Isn't this server stuff fun? I easily went through 500 into parts before I got a system that was stable. Luckily, I did re-purpose some of it.

    Not enough free space

    Should have worked unless you were trying to use the cache drive. The minimum free space should be set larger than the largest file you usually copy to avoid errors when disks are getting full.

    Win10 VM Lockup Issue

    I had my VM's start to do stupid things. It was a bad USB card I was passing through. It did work, but was still causing issues.

    Not enough free space

    Is one of the disks full? What did you set for allocation method, split level and minimum free space on the Media share? I wouldn't use a share called media. I would use a share for each type of media. IE, use a Movies share. If you have TV use a TV share.

    WiFi card for build

    Well, that's not exactly true. An Emby docker container can use the integrated GPU to help with transcoding.

    Newsgroup provider recommendations?

    Usenetserver has been good so far for what I need. I have been seeing errors but it seems I've been trying them too soon before all parts are posted.
